3 Arrested after Yorba Linda Residents Call In Suspicious Activity

Orange County Sheriff's Deputies have been on the lookout for suspects who may be part of a group that has been responsible for over 100 burglaries since October 2012. A recent string of 35 home burglaries in the Yorba Linda area had authorities urging residents to help in the search for those responsible by reporting any suspicious behavior. Residents did just that on a recent weekday afternoon which led to the arrest of three men suspected to be involved with the larger group that has been burglarizing homes in the area. Several calls from the East Lake Village area came in to authorities reporting that three men were knocking on doors in the neighborhood. Callers said that when they answered the door one of the men would ask for an individual that did not live at the home. It is assumed that the men would go on to another house if it was found that someone was home. The three men were reportedly going through the area in two cars. Deputies were dispatched to the neighborhood and found the two cars and three men which matched the description given by callers. The deputies searched the cars and reported finding items which are commonly used for burglaries and which also matched the tools that were suspected of being used in the other burglaries. The items included things such as screw drivers, crowbars, gloves, etc. Each of the men was questioned by the deputies and the officers reported that their stories didn't match up. The three men were taken into custody under suspicion of possession of burglary tools and conspiracy to commit burglary. Speak with a criminal defense attorney immediately if you have been arrested on suspicion of any crime. Make sure your rights are protected!

Skilled Criminal Defense for Theft Crime Charges

If you have been charged with a theft offense such as burglary, robbery, shoplifting, fraud or other theft crime then you could be facing serious felony or misdemeanor penalties. Burglary charges involve allegations of the suspect having the intention to steal items from the location or commit some other crime after illegally gaining entry to the property. No property needs to have been actually stolen in order for someone to be charged with this crime. But prosecutors must prove that there was intent by the suspect to commit a crime. A conviction for burglary can mean imprisonment and fines. Contact the Law Offices of Bruce C. Bridgman today to discuss your case. It may be possible to fight the charges against you and avoid severe punishment!
